About Ratings Systems

We want to give you as much information as possible about the wines we offer. That includes letting you know what the world's most knowledgeable critics have written about the wines. You will usually see ratings and short commentaries about the wine taken directly from critics' journals, websites or books, or from well-known wine magazines. Below is the list of sources we use for ratings and reviews.
